I finally had time to add more pendants with bling to my website - they seem to sell out fast, and I don't get more made fast! I wish my studio was about twice as big as it is - it would be so nice to leave all of my beads and charms out. It seems like such a process to drag it all out, and put it all away. So usually when I make blingy pendants, I make quite a few at a time. Oh, and yes...I do make all of the little bead sets! SOMEONE (my aunt) thought I bought them that way! NO!! They take a lot of time, so I want credit for them - lol!
I love this bee fabric and the charm too.
To me, this is paper piecing at its best - tiny points - just what paper piecing is made for
I forgot to show you what came home with me from the show in Minnesota. I met Tracy Trevethan for the first time. She designs patterns, and dyes wool and wool thread. I really loved them all, can you tell?
I'm hoping to design a few small patterns using Tracy's wool, then maybe offer kits at some point. Which reminds me - do you like the idea of buying a kit that is just the wool, and you provide your own cotton fabrics? These will be small things - not a full sized quilt. I feel like most of us have a stash of cotton, but maybe not so much wool. I like this idea, but am curious to how others feel about it.
Hope you have a great day!
